Akwa United have boasted they will get a result on the road Wednesday away at 3SC in continuation of the Nigeria Premier League.
“We are in Ibadan to win, but if we get a draw, we will be okay with that,” Akwa United coach Solomon Ogbeide told MTNFootball.com
Ogbeide has recovered from an accident on his way back from Port Harcourt after his team were sensationally dumped from this year’s Federation Cup by non-league Dynamite Force of Benin City.
Akwa have done well in their first season back in the top flight as they remain in contention for the championship in fifth place on 48 points, only four points behind leaders Enugu Rangers.
However, they are up against a Shooting Stars team who have put behind them an indifferent form from the first round. For this game, 3SC will miss Gabriel Adikwu and Philip Asuquo due to the red cards.
